Re: Course Deviation line in 'dots'

Great! Really comforting to know that Tony has actually come to a solution. This simple fact actually solves the whole issue and the problem of the OP, as usual. For my part, I am pleased to announce that I solved the problem of hunger in the whole world, and the end of all wars at the same time, an...

Re: T-6A Texan II Radio Management Unit (RMU)

Thanks. It's still a WIP, the Datarefs are tricky to find and use, some buttons only have commands.
And not all the functions are implemented in the addon, as far as I can see

Re: T-6A Texan II Radio Management Unit (RMU)

Hello JackZ, Thank you so much for hopping in :-). You font declarations are an eloquent solution. But they seem to perform poorly when run in the code. font_style3= "arimo_bold.ttf;" font_size3= "size:180px;" font_color3= "color: limegreen;" font_halign3= "halign: left;" font_valign3= " valign: to...

Re: T-6A Texan II Radio Management Unit (RMU)

There is not much of documentation/manual about the RMU 556 radio set on the Net. The only doc I could find is this one: https://www.cnatra.navy.mil/local/docs/pat-pubs/P-880.pdf starting from page 5-6 From here, here's an idea of what can be done with a font closer to the real deal. image.png Jacques

Re: Help with TAS indication

The scale of any IAS indicator is more than often non linear, that’s because of compressibility factor among others. The system of dynamic vs static pressure induces many errors, that impact on the accuracy of the instrument. The slower the airplane, the less the rate of pressure change in the press...

Re: Help with TAS indication

Here's the version with the lighting linked to the brightness dial of the C172 (could be a hardware or an AM one, via inter-instrument communication),and of course, tied to the BUS voltage, so there is no lighting when the MASTER BAT is OFF, and the light eventually goes Off when MASTER ALT is OFF o...

Re: Help with TAS indication

Hope you didn't micmic the LR's C172 TAS scale which, as said previously, is plain wrong. The real TAS speed scale should aligned with the IAS when flying under ISA conditions, namely 15°C at Sea Level, since ISA conditions are the ones where the IAS instrument is calibrated for. This is not the cas...

Re: Gazelle

For driving actual instruments, this can be really tricky, unless you are well versed in advanced electronics. An LCD replacement can be the easiest way, but you'll have to create your own AM instruments or have someone make them for you, provided you have the proper datarefs availbale. As per DCS A...
